What Is Battery Charge in Zenless Zone Zero?

Battery Charge is the energy system of Zenless Zone Zero. It’s the fuel you need to do the in-game activities. Whether you’re doing story quests or farming for characters and relics, you need a Battery Charge. Without enough Battery Charge, you can’t do any of these activities. Battery Charge is primarily used for three different simulation modes.

Combat Simulation

You can use Battery Charge in Combat Simulations to train your characters. In Combat Simulations, you’ll fight enemies and bosses to earn upgrade materials, promotion materials, and W-Engine modification materials.

Each training mode requires a specific amount of Battery Charge. So, properly managing Battery Charge can help you quickly progress in the game.

How to Restore Battery Charge

Here’s how you can refill your Battery Charge and keep playing:

Natural Recharge

Battery Charge refills automatically over time, even when you’re not playing. It recharges at a rate of one Battery Charge every six minutes, which means that after every hour, your battery charge refills by ten. Although slow, it doesn’t require effort, and you’re guaranteed a full charge every 24 hours. Make a routine of logging in at the same time daily.

Visit the Coffee Shop

An easy way to get more Battery Charge is to visit the Coffee Shop and buy drinks that refill your Battery Charge. This is cheap because you can use your in-game currency to purchase these drinks. However, you can only do this once every six and a half hours, and it will cost you 2500 Denny.

Ether Battery and Polychrome

You can also use Ether Battery and Polychrome to refill your battery charge. Ether Battery is a consumable item that instantly refills 100 Battery Charge. To get the Ether Batteries, you’ll either have to raise your Inter-Knot level or get them through various missions.

Purchasing Battery Charge 

You can buy Battery Charge from the in-game store. This method is useful in cases where you need a quick refill and can’t wait to try any other methods. However, it is recommended that you consider the other options first.
